Write selenium tests for Horizon running in a Devstack

Registered by Kieran Spear on 2013-04-10

We have unit tests with many many lines of mox stubbing. It'd be nice to be able to write selenium tests without bothering with all of that. This blueprint proposes the use of Selenium in integration tests run against a devstack, so we can catch higher-level integration issues earlier and have a layer of defence against missing unit tests or incorrect stubs.

Selenium tests also give us an easy way to generate screenshots for user documentation.

[gabriel] -- I fully agree, however I have thoughts on different directions this could go in terms of implementation. We should discuss at the testing session during the summit.

[jpichon 2013.10.09] If I recall correctly, there was no time to go into that topic during the last summit. Either way, it would be great to see notes on the blueprint as to the implementation ideas people had/have in mind.

Icehouse summit session: https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/icehouse-summit-Integration-Testing-for-Horizon . Decision: The Horizon functional tests will live in-tree to begin with, although the end goal remain to gate all projects on it.

Wiki: https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Horizon/Testing/UI

[jpichon 2013.12.19] Wiki update with information on the Page Object Pattern, which we're planning on using for the tests.

[jpichon 2013.01.10] The current plan is to have the "infrastructure" bits done by I2, so that the tests can be run by people and a potential jenkins job. In I3 and forever more, more tests will be written.

[tnovacik 2014.05.29] Some sort of languge layer should be created because currently there is language specific code although horizon supports changing language. Common web ui regions should be seperated into module, so they can be reused in page objects (tables, sidemenu, forms, etc...). I think that testing horizon plugins should be seperated from general horizon testing, because plugins are not installed by default on gates. I would suggest creating seperate folder for plugin tests and add switch to run_tests.sh script that would start plugin testing (for example sahara integration tests).

[tnovacik 2014.06.23] It might be good idea to create screenshots and download page source in case of error. (Better debugging especially in case of random failures)
[jpichon 2014.06.23] Feel free to open another blueprint to track this work, thanks!
